As reported by IVC: Avi Hasson will be expected to focus more on cleantech and life sciences.

Minister of Industry, Trade and Labor Binyamin Ben-Eliezer has proposed Gemini Partners general partner Avi Hasson as the next Chief Scientist. He will submit Hasson’s name for government approval in the next few days.
If Hasson is approved he will replace Dr. Eli Opper at the start of 2011. Hasson’s approval is expected to be a technical formality.

A statement put out by Ben-Eliezer’s office said that the new Chief Scientist will need to focus significantly on R&D in cleantech and the life sciences.
